Easy Latin Puzzles
The title is a bit of an oxymoron but we hope you will enjoy the book anyway. Serious but fun, easy but actually quite difficult, short but very time-consuming. This is a collection of 60 puzzles, varying from simple crosswords to word searches, arrow-words, sudokus and cryptic mind benders. They are all based on a set of vocabulary created by analysing a range of early chapters of several of the most popular Latin courses today. They should be accessible to early students of Latin, as well as to adults whose recollection of Latin from their quondam days may be a little hazy. The book does not make use of Latin endings systems, which is how we can justify calling it Easy. For those of you who get stuck, vocabulary lists and answers can be found at the back.
Please note that the current edition of this book is the fourth one. Various corrections and improvements have been made from the third edition, including the addition of 10 new puzzles and a full revision of the word lists used.
Tricky Latin Puzzles
The harder of these two books has been written for students learning Latin today or for those to whom the good old days beckon. These 65 crossword puzzles, sudokus, wordsearches and other brainteasers should bring plenty of fun. This companion volume to Easy Latin Puzzles raises the bar higher than before and is aimed at those who have studied the language for two or three years at least. For those of you who get stuck, answers can be found at the back!
Please note that the current edition of this book has been revised substantially from the original first version and expanded by the addition of 15 new puzzles.
